DIGITAL X-RAY FACILITIES

We have a designated x-ray room with digital developing technology, which enhances picture quality and reduces waste costs. This means that we can pass these savings on to pet owners.

Please note: A consultation with a veterinary surgeon is necessary prior to the booking of an x-ray.

Ultrasound

ULTRASOUND SCANNING

We have a basic ultrasound scanner on the premises which can be used to perform scans during consulting periods; however we have an excellent relationship with North East Veterinary Imaging (NVI) whom we can arrange to come into the surgery to perform more technically demanding scans using a higher spectrum scanner.

Scans can usually be booked in the same working week during surgery hours. Results in either case will be given the same day.

DENTAL SUITE

We have a designated dental room where we have all the equipment necessary to carry out all the regular procedures you would expect from your own dentist, ie. scale and polish, tooth extraction, etc.

We do believe in prevention being better than cure however so we advocate dental hygiene regimes for pet owners to perform on their pets.

For advice and a free dental check up please book an appointment. See our Free Clinics section for more details.

HEALTHY PETS'

We encourage a preventative medicine approach to owners and their pets. This includes vaccinating annually, worming every quarter, applying flea product every 4-8 weeks and neutering all non-breeding pets.

A healthy pet = clean teeth and healthy gums, trimmed nails, bright eyes, glossy coat, clean odour free ears.

NEUTERING

THE BENEFITS OF NEUTERING ARE:

Pets don't stray, prevents against unwanted litters, prevents against testicular and prostate cancers in the dog and tom cat, and mammary tumours and pyometra's (womb infections) in the bitch and queen. It can also reduce aggressive and boisterous behaviour without taking away character and prevent false pregnancies. It can also prevent tom cats territory marking, or ‘spraying' and fighting, which in turn, prevents against FELV.

Rabbits, Guinea-pigs and ferrets can be neutered from 6 months of age.

Ultimately, neutering prevents aggressive behaviour, false pregnancies, prevents against ovarian cysts.

FEEDING

CATS AND DOGS

We recommend that dogs and cats get fed for their life stage i.e. 1) puppy/kitten: up to 1yr 2) adult: 1yr-6/8yrs 3) senior/mature adult: over 8/10yrs.

We recommend a complete, nutritionally balanced good quality diet of either dry biscuits or tinned meat (or both). We only stock veterinary recommended ‘premium' diets.

RABBITS, GUINEA-PIGS, FERRETS, HAMSTERS;

‘Selective feeding' is a problem with small animals. This is simply where a mixed food of cereals, grasses, oats etc is given and the animal simply picks out food of interest and often doesn't get the nutritional balance they need.

There are veterinary diets on the market which prevent this, as all the ingredients are formed into one pellet. These pelleted versions are also very good for dental care, keeping the teeth trim and gums healthy.

PET INSURANCE

It's important to be aware that not all pet insurance is the same. Some policies limit the amount of time or money that you can claim for. Don't just shop around on price alone. Ask the following five key questions so you clearly understand what each policy does and doesn't cover:

  • Will the policy cover my pet for on-going conditions (e.g. eczema) into its old age?
  • Will exclusions be placed at renewal for an illness that occurred in the previous year?
  • Will my excess or premium increase if I make a claim?
  • Will the policy cover: congenital and hereditary illness, hip-related conditions, dental treatment or behavioural conditions?
  • Is the provider a pet insurance specialist?

RE-HOMING

At Hadrian Vets we care and have concerns for all animals. Our stray fund has been a huge success. Your contributions of loose change and donations are most welcome to help with only the cost of medications used. Through your generosity we have been able to treat and care for many stray and wild animals.

We can also assist owners to find loving homes for their pets for whatever reasons they may require it.

We will update this site to include any animals requiring re-homing, please contact us for more details.

ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture is a form of diagnosis and treatment that originated in the far east over three thousand years ago. It uses fine needles which are inserted into specific points of the body to produce physiologic responses which assist in the body to heal.

The Ancient Chinese said that illness was a state of imbalance due to a blockage of the normal energy flow in the body. Acupuncture is a means of restoring this energy flow within the body. Modern research has shown that acupuncture can have an effect on all body systems.

Acupuncture treatment involves the insertion of a varying number of fine needles which are left in place for approximately twenty minutes.

The average number of treatments is about four and if improvement follows it will usually be apparent by then.

Treatments are usually weekly initially and with improvement this time is lengthened. Chronic conditions may subsequently require booster treatments at varying intervals.

Animals accept needles well and often relax and even fall asleep during the treatment.

There is little risk from acupuncture treatment when in expert hands.

Acupuncture is a useful form of therapy especially for conditions that do not respond well to orthodox means. It is not a cure-all but should be considered with other established methods of treatment. It can fill a gap but will never replace conventional therapy but can at times be beneficial when other treatments have failed. It has the advantage that undesirable side effects of some drug therapy can be avoided.

Acupuncture is especially useful in the following conditions:

  • degenerative joint disease
  • arthritis
  • back pain
  • chronic lung problems
  • chronic diarrhoea
  • hip dysplasia
  • incontinence
  • muscle, ligament and tendon injuries
  • some forms of paralysis
  • sinusitis
  • spondylosis
  • some skin conditions

Additionally it can help chronic pain which is not being controlled adequately by conventional treatment or when side effects are a problem.
